about taking their findings as the new law of the land. that their findings about him were correct. he had to show he was serious about that, and if he did that, maybe they would lift the lifetime ban they had imposed upon him. the second thing he had to do was build public sympathy. try to remind people why they fell in love with lance armstrong in the first place. on the first front, failed miserably. he actually drew a line through the heart of the usada report. the heart of the report said that lance armstrong was actually a doping ringleader, that he wasn't just another cyclist who used peds, but that he organized his team to actually use dope. >> he wasn't accepting of that last night. >> no. he said absolutely not. and today they are not happy with that interview. on the second front about building public sympathy, i mean, my word, i felt like i was watching the titanic hit an iceberg. i felt like oprah kept trying to help him, like throwing him lifelines, like try to make yourself more sympathetic, please. all he could do is stare back with this reptilian look on his face and r

of the reaction this week. senator max baucus "before passing new laws we need a thoughtful debate that respects responsible law abiding gun owners in montana instead of one side fits all directives from washington. senator tim johnson, democrat of south dakota, "it makes common sense to not have one size fits all. senator mark begich, democrat of alaska, "i feel like it's going to be hard for they of these pieces of legislation to pass at this point." these are democrats. what is he going to bring to bear on that? >> it is a tough issue. i will say this, these are commonsense proposals that respect the rights of gun owners. let's start there. and i think if you look at high-capacity magazines, assault weapons, universal background checks, the progress we can make on mental health and school safety, all of these enjoy enormous support of the american people. democrats and republicans, so i think that putting together the legislative coalition is going to be hard obviously but we're very confident. i do think things have changed since newtown, you know, senator manchin and republicans and democra
, they would even say no to their own ideas. >> this law failed by seven votes. when seven republicans, who had co-sponsored the bill, had co-sponsored the idea suddenly walked away from their own proposal after i endorsed it. so they make a proposal, sign on to the bill. i say, great. good idea. i turned around, they're gone. what happened? >> this was a hallmark of president obama's first term. republicans were going to say no, no, no, no matter what he offered. even if what he offered was their own idea in the first place. that is how it went for months and then that is how it went for years. and now, what's new? he is not doing that anymore. >> i have put forward a very clear principle. i will not negotiate around the debt ceiling. we're not going to play the same game that we saw happen in 2011. so we're not going to do that. i will not negotiate around the debt ceiling. we're not going to do that again. as i said earlier this week, one thing i will not compromise over is whether or not congress should pay the tab for a bill they've already racked up. what i will not do is to have that neg
a new law. >>> a limit on the size of magazine clips. the president wants legislation to limit clips to ten bullets. something that would have reduced, perhaps, the number killed in the aurora, colorado movie theater massacre. >>> and then there is the president's most important push. and that's for universal background checks. this is probably the thing that has the best chance of getting through congress. has the support of some gun rights advocates. and might, just might, get bipartisan support. universal background checks could have prevented the columbine high school gunman from buying an assault weapon from a private seller who had bought it at a gun show. the president also proposed clearing the way for schools who want armed guards to get them. but he made just a passing reference to violent video games calling for research on their effects. and there was not a single mention of hollywood, violence, television or movies. president obama knows the only way anything meaningful will get done, though, on guns is if gun control advocates are able to tap into public emotion. frustr
differently. the problem with the gun control debate from the perspective of folks who want gun control laws is they need to say, we don't want to target lawful gun owners. 47% of adults in this country say they have a gun in the home. you want to say, we want to separate out the people who are gun trafficking and doing other things that promote the climate of gun violence from that cause of lawful gun owners. i think the nra, they win by losing. the more you have a debate around these issues the more it seems we're going to get more gun laws, the nra builds intensity that way. >> erin, that's the mistake that i've been saying from day one. this should not be a gun control conversation. it should be a gun violence conversation. and if you are talking gun control, you're playing on the nra's field. if you say gun violence and you broaden it, that's a different debate. that's been the problem from day one. >> all right, thanks to all of you. you always want to have the home field advantage. if they have it, they have it. >>> doctors racing to save the vision of a man who was attacked with acid
you go through background checks. you are proficient in shooting. you learn the laws. the time has proven, anderson, since the late '90s when this bill originally passed that chl holders in texas are very responsible citizens. in fact people who do not have a chl are 16 times more likely to commit a crime. >> anderson, if i may -- >> a fraction of a percent have ever been involved in a crime. these are responsible adults. not toting guns around. >> you mention our troops. more are dying from suicide this past year than in combat. >> you're a better journalist than to go down that rabbit trap. >> i'm asking a question. i'm not getting into an argument. i'm just stating a fact. >> no, you're asking me about an issue that has nothing to do with carrying guns on a college campus. >> suicide doesn't, the high number of suicides on college campuses has nothing to do with access to firearms? >> if that's the best you have to debate this issue, that's a sad statement. >> i'm not debating with you, sir. i'm asking a question. if you can't answer, that's fine. you can attack me all you want.
go. >> what about external? i mean, i could cite all sorts of different laws in which criminal behavior could have actually been tracked, if this woman had ever asked for a penny from him for treatment. if she had ever asked or encouraged him to raise money. those are crimes. and that's something the police can get involved, and police can triangulate cell phone signals and go after i.p. addresses and find you in a nanosecond, oh where is all of that? >> it's coming. if not, outside private investigations as well. manti te'o just graduated. slated for a top ten draft pick. a $10 million to $20 million investment worth over $1 billion. they do due diligence on players who aren't involved in the most bizarre sports story of the last 25 years. you better believe they're going to dig up every last aspect of this young man's personal life to find out what he did and why he did it, and the story is only going to get more strange as we go down the rabbit hole, i believe. >> you know, i asked the famed sports, the legendary sports agent leigh steinberg in the last hour if this young ma
. our cover story explains what's next. after a month of meetings with parents of victims, law enforecement and members of the national rifle association, president obama signed 23 executive actions that can be implimented without congressional approval. they include money for schools to hire a thousand security officers and restoring aid to research gun violence at the centers for disease control. "congress, too, must act, and congress must act soon." the president listed a half- billion-dollar effort that will need congressional approval to enforce universal background checks for anyone buying a weapon, reinstatement of the assault-weapons ban that expired, a ban on high-capacity ammunition clips defined as more than ten rounds, and more aggressive prosecution of gun laws. reaction was swift. "the vast majority of americans support common-sense gun regulation, and clearly the white house was listening." the national rifle association, which is reportedly planning to launch a daily tv talk show, released an ad critical of the president. the nra also issued this statement: in t

in on that. 56% of respondents want stricter laws. 42% say no change or less strict laws. is that enough for the president to get his gun control initiatives through congress? >> no. one of the things that we see in gun control as in some other issues is an asymmetry between the people who, in larger, the number of people who in general support stricter law, but the intensity, the fervency of people who oppose those las. so the intensity is on the side of the opponents. one of the things that might have surprised some people in our journal nbc poll was the national rifle association had a somewhat better image that some people expected. on par, on balance, it was a positive image. only down slightly in terms of the negatives since the newtown tragedy. and so you know, you look back in history. after columbine, the nra was in neg territory, but after the gabby giffords shooting two years ago in positive territory. they're still isn't positive territory and they're the leading edge of the effort to turn back those restrictions. that doesn't mean the president can't get them through, but it
